Borrowing Materials Recalls

If an item you need is charged out to another patron, the item may be recalled. ¬†Recalls may be placed in the Griffin Campus Library with the item’s call number and your UGACard.
When an item is recalled, the loan period may be shortened. A notice is sent to the current user informing them of the item’s new due date.

For UGA patrons, recall fines are $1.00 per day per item with a maximum accrued recall fine of $30.00 per item. For GIL Express patrons, recall fines are $2.50 per day per item with a maximum accrued recall fine of $30.00 per item. Library privileges may be suspended and/or flagged if the item is not returned in a timely fashion.

In the event that more than one user has recalled the same item, each user will be able to borrow it for a two-week period in the order that the recalls were placed. Items recalled to be put on course reserve take precedence over other requests.
